Trying to import a new external (A-Chaos)

Sep 15 2010 | 8:42 pm

OSX Snow leopard, Max 5.0.8

I'm trying to install…

The downloaded ZIP when unarchived has an "A-Chaos bin X" "bin 9" "help" and "lib src" folders.

The binX one contains a bunch a unix executables, a-baker, a-clifford, etc, etc.

I've tried adding these to various places in my Max area on the harddrive, but none of them are loading when I restart max, I keep getting max external not found when I try to run the help files.

Can anyone check to see if they can load these, and where you put them to get them to load.

Try downloading the UB version. It’s got the *.mxo versions of the externals.

Ugh, man, something that simple, I never even saw the UB version. Many thanks, that worked a treat. Can’t wait to see what I can do with these.

Thanks !!
